The beginning of the 21st century is characterized by the emergence of a number of military local conflicts around the world. The peculiarities of combat trauma in modern conditions include a high frequency of blast and gunshot wounds of extremities, which account for up to 80% of all musculoskeletal injuries [1]. In general, a gunshot wound is tissue damage with a violation of the integrity of their cover, caused by a firearm and characterized by a zone of primary necrosis and changes resulting in the formation of areas of secondary necrosis in the surrounding tissues, as well as the inevitable primary risk of developing wound infection [1,2].
